An inquest into the death of a popular nightclub barman and insurance administrator will be held today.

Grant Curtis was found dead in the bedroom of his home on Douro Place in Norwich on Saturday, October 28, 2017.

The 22-year-old worked at the insurance company Aviva for around a year, while also working as a bartender at Mercy nightclub in Prince of Wales Road at weekends.

Those who knew Mr Curtis described him as someone who had a “heart of gold” and “always had a smile on his face”.

An inquest into his death opened at the Norfolk Coroner’s Court in Norwich on Tuesday, January 2.

Senior coroner Jacqueline Lake said Mr Curtis’s body was found in his bedroom and he was declared dead at the scene.

A post-mortem gave the medical cause of death as “opiate excess”.

A gofundme website page set up shortly after his death to support his family with funeral costs raised £3,000.
